Atlantica & Wow/ DV8/ Out

This bar and nightclub had many names through the 1990s and 2000s, from Atlantica and Wow to Atlantica and DV8, then Out (both bar & club) and back to Wow. Confused? We were.

Occupying much of the ground floor of Bute Terrace’s Harlech Court, Atlantica and Wow were a café bar and nightclub launched in the 1990s by Steven Collyer and his partner Jason Roe.

It went through various rebrands in the years before it closed, Wow becoming DV8, then both the club and cafe bar renamed as Out, and finally the entire venue reverting to Wow. The premises later became the entertainment venue and bar Porter’s, while the Wow brand continued at addresses on Churchill Way and Windsor Place, closing in 2020.
